About Me

profile (2)We’re so blessed to live in this current age. It’s been said we get more news every day than our ancestors had in a lifetime. A world of technology and knowledge (but not always wisdom) is at our finger tips.

Anything you want to know or are interested in is a mere click away.

For me, the roadblocks to learning something new are usually the ones in my mind. The fear of failure and of making a situation worse before it gets better; the tendency to say “I’m just not a <fill-in-the-blank> person”; and throw in some plain old laziness.

It’s surprisingly tough to acknowledge that you are smart enough, the resources are out there (including accepting a helping hand from someone else), and with enough effort you will figure it out. Especially that last part.

“None of my inventions came by accident. . . . What it boils down to is one per cent inspiration and ninety-nine per cent perspiration.” ~ Thomas Edison

Everything around you is the result of someone rolling up their sleeves and digging in. No one can learn everything, but we don’t have to stop learning either.

I write on here when I’ve figured something out and want to share the knowledge. Or I’m working on a project and want to share an idea. We learn by doing. We’ve all got something to contribute.
